Today we open with three different stories all related to the financial health of our banks and our economy. The Financial Times is reporting on upwards of $60 billion dollars being withdrawn from banks. Yahoo Finance reports that Morgan Stanley’s CIO says a credit crunch has started as banks tighten lending by the most on record. Finally, Elon Musk predicts a dire financial situation for the U.S. later this year.
So, what’s happening behind the scenes that we aren’t being explicitly told? Was the SVB collapse an indication of being the giant canary in the coal mine? If it died, does it mean the miners are already dying and we just haven’t figured that out yet?
Imagine this, if people are willing to riot and loot now, before any economic collapse, what’s going to happen to the country when it really does get bad? The city of Chicago is mired in crime and the public is living in fear daily, yet they voted for the guy who is going to make it worse. That’s not hyperbole. That’s a fact.
As I close the show, I do leave you with some ideas and suggestions on how to whether the coming economic storm. The time to take stock of your life and your situation is now, before the bad comes. You have to ask yourself if you could survive for a few weeks if you couldn’t get to the store. Are there ways you could stretch your dollar at the store? What about pinching pennies on your own utilities. Even if the worse doesn’t come to pass, what’s the harm in being just a little proactive in planning for the possible emergency?

Actor - Writer - Director - Radio - Veteran | I like ‘guy’ things: women, sports, video games, dogs, drinking, football, shooting guns, war movies, action movies, sci-fi movies and playing the hero. I am a red-blooded, American male through-and-through. But, I have another side as well, a deep and entrenched creative side, which started with writing and evolved to include acting and radio. As a result, I have appeared in nearly 100 stage shows and been involved in dozens of motion pictures, including two independent features available on Amazon Prime.
I have also been in broadcast radio for over 20 years. Thus far, I have been honored to receive five GAB Awards from the Georgia Association of Broadcasters: Two for Best On-Air Personality and three for Best Talk Show.
It was only natural with these pursuits, podcasting would eventually be added to my plate. In late 2017, I decided to start a show with my buddy and co-host, Walt Murray, called, The Wilder Ride. We examine the films of Gene Wilder in the movies by minutes format. This has opened the door to meeting so many new and amazing podcasters from around the world and led to some amazing friendships! As Shakespeare puts it, “I am amazed and know not what to say!” Afterwards, my wife and I started a show called, 'The Marriage Fit Podcast" where we talk about our lives as a blended family. Our tag line is it's a show about trying to make things fit, staying fit, and not throwing a fit.
Of all the roles I play, though, I want to point out that there are two I consider more important than any I have ever played (or will ever play) and that is being a DAD and HUSBAND. I have four girls, ages, 26, 24, 23, and 21 and there is nothing I won't do for them. And, none of life's ambitions would be possible without the strength and support of my best friend in the entire world, my wife, Susan. Regardless of anything else, nothing will ever outshine them.
